It’s been just the kids and I for about three weeks. The first couple of weeks were kind of rough. The kid felt the absence of their father and I certainly missed my husband. I don’t really know anyone here yet, so not having anyone to talk to has been hard. This next year is gonna drag, but we’re getting into our routines and thanking the Lord for FaceTime. My son Michael took these photos of Ellena and I. Aren’t they great? He’s got a great eye. I felt so proud.
Ellena is fully a part of our lives and our hearts as she has been since the day we found out a new baby would be coming into our lives. We all adore her so much and the boys fight to see who will get to hold her, or watch her when I’ve got to prepare meals or take a shower.
The dress I’m wearing if from Old Navy. You can find a similar one here, here, here. The stripped scalloped outfit Ellena is wearing is from the Victoria Beckham Collection from Target.
I’m totally smitten with this jumpsuit Ellena is wearing. I love how totally feminine and dainty it is. I purchased it at Macys. You can find it here.
